Fantastic content. Short and to the point and every podcast gives at least 1 amazing idea to either implement, think about or dive deeper into. Awesome job!!
The information on this podcast is great and applicable, but you talk way way too fast. So fast that it’s not only challenging to hear what you’re saying, it actually becomes irritating because of how you sound.
Please please slow your cadence so I can hear what you’re saying and enjoy the podcast.
I love the Team Success podcast series. The shorter episodes are ideal for me, but I love the topics. Also, I love how these reinforce the Coach tools helps me communicate with my entrepreneur.
